Plumbing Curriculum Guide. Construction Trades. Michigan Trade and Industrial Education.
Michigan State Univ., East Lansing. Coll. of Agriculture and Natural Resources Education Inst.
This task-based curriculum guide is intended to help secondary teachers provide relevant training for an entry-level job in plumbing. Introductory materials include background information on trade and industrial education and program goals and safety information. Descriptions follow of the construction trades program, vocational cooperative education, work experience/unpaid work experience, work experience and career exploration programs, and vocational work study. This job information is then provided: job titles and a task inventory for plumbing. Tasks are grouped under these eight duties: performing general plumbing activities, joining pipes, installing waste lines, building drains, installing water lines, setting fixtures, performing special features, and using employability skills. Duty tabs comprise the largest portion of the curriculum guide. Each task in the listing is presented in a one-page format that provides this information: duty, task, achievement indicators, criteria, tools and equipment, and resources. Other components of the curriculum guide include a student achievement record, a class achievement record, and a glossary of vocational terms. (YLB)
